I went to staples today and I was asking one of the employees there about the Windows 7 Upgrade version and he said that he tried both the upgrade version and the full version and said that the full version was faster does anyone else have reports of this? I'd like to save the $60 if possible but i'd like my computer to be as fast as it can be, even if that means spending a little extra.

EDIT: title should be Windows 7, not Microsoft 7.

Buy the upgrade version, but do a "clean" installation. See this tutorial http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1818-...-7-a.html?ltr=U

I think someone was trying to get more money out of you.

Most likely he was trying to make a sale but he may also have been attempting to tell you in a clumsy and inaccurate way that an upgrade isn't the best way to go. He was probably ignorant of the fact that an upgrade disk can be used to do a clean install.
